Mommy and Daddy are catching fish for me, and also teaching me how to find and catch my own. And they're showing me how to protect myself from danger. They've been alive for many years, and know everything loons need to know to survive. They said sometimes we get a storm or Bad Thing, but they also said that when I made it to the Gulf of Mexico this fall, it would be really fun and exciting, and I'd know just how to deal with any problems I encountered. What could be better? Yep--earth's the right place for me!
We Alder Flycatchers don't usually pose for photos. But heck--we're as beautiful as any, in my opinion, so I decided it was time to let a photographer see me up close and personal. Click on the photo and view "all sizes" to see how close I let her in. And after you look, please go away.
